Contour and firm your skin with microneedling
Microneedling in Naples
Over time, the years of sunshine and laughing can cause changes in our skin. These changes can show themselves as wrinkles, fine lines or loose skin – however, you don’t need to accept these changes as permanent. At Kenzi MedSpa, we are proud to offer microneedling in Naples. Microneedling is a non-surgical approach to revitalizing your skin.
Microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that helps to contour and firm skin. This treatment is normally focused on the face, neck and hands. Microneedling works by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen which regulates the texture and appearance of your skin. By triggering the natural healing process of your skin, your skin becomes revitalized.
This process normally takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area, and provides many cosmetic benefits.
If you struggle with any of the following, you may be a good candidate for microneedling:
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin
- Large pores
- Fine lines
However, if any of the following conditions apply, you may not be eligible for microneedling at this time:
- You are pregnant
- You have eczema or psoriasis
- You have open wounds on your face
- You have recently undergone radiation therapy
If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for microneedling, contact our office!
There is minimal preparation required for microneedling, however, your esthetician may have recommendations for you to follow so you can enjoy a smooth treatment with the best results possible.
Prior the treatment, it is recommended to avoid:
- Sun exposure for 24 hours leading into the appointment.
- Retin-A and alpha-hydroxy products for 12 hours before the appointment.
After the treatment, for a few days it is recommended to:
- Keep skin care simple by only using gentle cleansers and toners.
- Avoid harsh exfoliating chemicals.
- Avoid scented products.
These recommendations are not an all-inclusive list. For the best results, listen to the recommendations of your esthetician.
Immediately after microneedling, you can expect to experience redness and mild irritation in and around the treatment area that will last up to two days.
Once your skin heals, you will start to notice the benefits gradually over the next few weeks. As microneedling triggers the natural healing processes of the skin, the benefits take time to show. You can expect to continue to enjoy the benefits for up to six months after treatment!
